Snowdrops and those affilated with them past and present are the 

RAF Police Associates

This website is nothing to do with the organisation known as the RAF Police Association although it may feature Association members on its pages.

It is provided, and has been provided by me personally for the last 18 years, as a link for serving and past members of the RAF Police and Provost branch and associated trades and groups as well as for non RAF personnel to maintain contact and provide a service.

It was the site formally known as the RAF Police Association website but a very small number of members (the National Officers) wished to go down a different route and decided to spend thousands of pounds on a new website without consulting the members.

And despite what has been alleged by some members and their wives, this is not a splinter group.  I and many others object to the undemocratic way the Association has been hijacked by a small number of members. 

We didn't want thousands of pounds of our money being spent against our wishes on a new website and hundreds of pounds on a Masonic-like "Jim fixed it for me" pendant for the Chairman. Even when a purchase was agreed by the Trustees beforehand like the President's Trophy, the meeting then upped the cost to members by £100 with no comments in the minutes from the Trustees who attended the meeting.

An Association member, one of many, has described the new website as:

"It is utter shite and a complete waste of members money and can only be classed as a vanity project. "

To try to understand what is going on and why I, Steve Davies and Steve Lamacraft have been suspended from the RAF Police Association, click below

The Full Story Gone Public

the suspension of Steve Lamacraft has now been lifted (but with no apology) and the suspension of Steve Davies has been "varied" (but with no apology) but mine still stands. (Which is more than I do!).  

In addition the link below is a rebuttal to the libel of me by the Chairman of the RAFP Association in the Griff and other correspondance. It is in the Forum but for those people who do not have access, click below:


This is very apt to the situation on here
